Harden the F_ck up Princess!

. . . . is your fridge Killing You ?

Fridges - they are the kitchen appliance of the decade.
Refrigerators have gone from simply being White Goods to a Life statement - they tell the world what sort of person we are. Teflon Coated, iPod Implanted, Stainless Steel or Hidden Away - is your fridge killing you?

It sounds like a relatively simple question right . . . .

Clearly this isn't simple, we're talking about the inside of your fridge and how you abuse it. It's so much fun to fill - takes an entire expedition - absolutely stunning persian fetta sopped in olive oil - gorgeous cured meats from that brilliant delicatessen round the corner, the list is endless. The delights that get into that cold cold space are often temptations that are too hard to resist.

Actually, it's not just what you've filled it with, it also has to do with the way you abuse those temptations, take the for granted.

See we have this theory that food is simply fuel, unless of course your slightly ocd and insist on compensating some emotional lacking with food.

So your getting this ? What we're talking about is a definite leaning toward a sedentary life, being sat in a chair for 45 hours a week - exercising by moving around the home/office. You Got Fat Right !

No Shit Sherlock - walking from the bedroom to the fridge - from the study to the fridge - from the TV room to the fridge, does not constitute exercise! Harden The F_ck up Princess - STOP opening the fridge - you know whats in there - get out of the house, take the dog for a walk, take the kids to the park, do just about anything, just don't keep opening the fridge!

Here are a couple of - hopefully motivating - Death Defying Quotes:

"it's not just your heart that's at risk from too much sitting; your hips, spine, and shoulders could also suffer. In fact, it's not a leap to say that a chair-potato lifestyle can ruin you from head to toe"

"new evidence suggests, in fact, that the more hours a day you sit, the greater your likelihood of dying an earlier death "

"a 2010 study in the Journal of Applied Physiology found that when healthy men limited their number of footsteps by 85 percent for 2 weeks, they experienced a 17 percent decrease in insulin sensitivity, raising their diabetes risk"

"we've done a lot to keep people alive longer, but that doesn't mean we're healthier"

Get out of the house, don't let the fridge kill your ass . . .
